Cars That Burn Water As Fuel Are Here Today
You must be thinking “that’s crazy, water doesn’t burn”. And you are right; water does not hydrogen does!
Hydrogen is one of the most energy efficient fuels known to mankind; but in its raw state, it can be very volatile and dangerous.
However, when hydrogen is methodically extracted from water; it is very safe and stable; and can be harnessed to enhance the performance of any internal combustion engine; allowing us to use less fuel and prolong the lives of our engines; while at the same time improving engine performance.
Cars that burn water as fuel are possible today because of a decades old technology that has been repressed by those who profit from “big oil”; at the expense of all of us and to the detriment of our environment. That technology is available to us today and it is a remarkably simple technology to implement. For mere dollars, I can show you how to simply and easily convert any vehicle into one that will:
1. Get double; possibly even triple its current mileage.
2. Run more smoothly.
3. Have more power.
4. Have a longer engine life.
